Watford’s Brazilian forward Richardlison has only been in English football for 3 months but he is already being tracked by Spurs.
The 20-year old joined Watford from Fluminense in a £11.2 million deal in the summer, but has made an instant impact in the Premier League, scoring 4 goals in 11 appearances to date.
This has not gone unnoticed by Tottenham Hotspur who have regularly sent scouts to Vicarage Road to monitor the performances of the Brazilian under-20 international.
Although primarily a centre-forward, Richardlison is equally comfortable operating either on the left or right-wing, and, as a two-footed player is highly versatile, a quality that Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino will value as much as his goal scoring prowess.
If Richardlison were to join Spurs it would complete a rapid rise to fame for a player who came through the youth ranks at Atletico Mineiro before joining Fuminense for just one season before his move to England.
